Workers at Bangkok Port stopped working overtime starting yesterday evening to pressure for the dismissal of the Port Authority of Thailand (PAT) director-general. 

About 300 workers belonging to the PAT union rallied at the PAT headquarters in Klong Toey district yesterday and vowed to maintain the stoppage at least until Monday, when the board meets.
